Land Booster Spirit

My first L-Gaim kit in years, of the fighter/transport airplane. The completed kit is a lot larger than I expected. The Land Booster cannot be folded up anymore in its landing configuration. Some minor modifications were made, such as the addition of inner walls to the (rather undetailed) cockpit and engines, adding detail to the airintakes, and reinforcing the rear carrying booms because Bandai's design can't support the weight of the parts. The instruction seem to have an error in them (two parts swapped left/right), meaning that some careful testfitting is required to get everything to fit as intended. The canopy was painted flat aluminium and then dipped in clear orange paint to obtain the gradient effect.
